Reverb 10 – Making A Wise Decision Requires Trust
This is day ten in the month long #Reverb10 that I am participating in (along with hundreds of others). Each day I will be either posting here, tweeting or Tumblr-ing my answer to the prompt in order to reflect and manifest for the future. You can read all my Reverb10 posts here.
Prompt: Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out? Via Sussanah Conway.
I think this year was a wise one. I sustained.
I took care of myself more. I don’t have any negative people/relationships around me and I stood true to me.
I think the wisest decision I’ve made this year was to take a risk, while listening to my heart.
The boyfriend, didn’t live here back in March. We have known each other for a few years, but when we finally met were taken aback with our connection and comfortability in each others’ presence. It was as though we were on a conveyor belt toward each other, trying to walk backwards, the other way is impossible.
He was in a place where he could go anywhere, his career would allow him of that too. In fact, South Korea was where he was headed.
But…we had a few trips together. We had many long distance phone calls late into the night – felt like we were in high school. He visited Boulder. He met my friends. He felt a calling here. It was so easy. It could have been so complicated and confusing, but when you want something, when it’s right, it’s easy.
Even still, I’m a realist. I was scared. I couldn’t even believe someone “might move for me/us” so early on. We both say we would have told our friends if they were in the same situation, “You’re crazy!”
But I had to. We had to. We did it for us. And what a grand gesture it was…a move across the country, in the name of love.
But that’s the thing – sometimes crazy is crazy good. We would have always wondered. What would have happened? Love is always a risk. It takes depth and trust to dive in and this is where we have blossomed.
You make these wise, close-to-your-heart, authentic decisions because you have no other choice. We had no idea what the future may bring, but we did have right then, that moment. That’s when the power of now comes into play.
Thank you to risk, love, cultivation, trust, communication and sustaining…what a ride it has been. Isn’t it funny the wisest decision I made was the craziest, too?
What is your wisest decision this year?
